The Trial Of Han Solo

LOL that was funny I predicted something like “self-defence” and when the video played some few moments in I burst out laughing.

Oh, one more thing E.T. original isn’t the original otherwise the soundtrack wouldn’t have partly some of the newly 20th anniversary sound effects placed in it, now then, listen carefully to the each version very carefully!

I surrender at this point I’ve saved the files to a folder and I will attempt to have another go at this next year, I appreciate the time you’ve given me, but I tried and tried for something like 4 or 5 hours the other night and it almost drove me (stir crazy).

I will be ready for the trails when I get a new home to move into unless of course you can do a shorter version of the films or break them up into parts and upload them on Megavideo then I can watch and reflect my comments.

Thanks.

Hi Arnie.d

Hello guys

I’m not, doubting it I’m just being cautious because some so called past DVD titles that I brought where so appalling for example the large quid box-set of Alien that has the so called originals and directors cut.

Well Alien as been a popular title and sorry for drifting (off-topic) since this is related to Ridley Scott, Alien as been a popular title for sound in the home cinema after its realise in cinemas back in 1979, I might also add Star Wars and Close Encounters of the third Kind.

So point is I’ve noticed some dreadful re-mixing on Alien directors cut, you know the part where Dallas is crawling though the (air-ducts)? The iris that opens and closes on that version has part of the mix or (centre phantom) blended into the centre channel oh no!

If you where to compare the original version on the first Alien DVD edition you will notice the six-track Dolby stereo mix or Dolby 5.1 is more exact sounding to the 1979 realise.

The colour tinting and so fourth what a waste of time, I switched the film sound off and listened to the audio commentary track sessions which are different from the first edition as Ridley Scott hosts the first one and again on the (so called new one) along with a second track with cast and crew.

So I’m just genuinely being cautious. One of the reasons I brought DVD in the first place after waiting three-years since it was realised in the UK, was the large category of tittles and the readability of many original titles that where realised in six-track Dolby stereo on the 70mm format, and Blade Runner is now one such title that I’m interested in.

If you read my signature that applies to the Star Wars films there are some Dolby titles that where produced and encoded for format 43 which is commonly know as Dolby 5.1 because it was it used split-stereo-surrounds and one single sub bass channel.

Only the originals from the 70mm six-track Dolby stereo Dolby format 42 will sound better on DVD.

But don’t get you’re hopes up too high because, I’ve given up almost in buy more Star Wars DVD titles and I doubt it will ever happen I doubt you or I will ever hear the 70mm six-track Dolby stereo versions that where used for the original, Star Wars films, that is not going to happen, otherwise he would have done it last year…instead of that he pulled a fast one on the fans, and he damn well knows he did.

I doubt he even cared to read one major forum site where this discussion was talked about until everyone was blue in the face. Some wanted anamorphic I wanted the original six-track Dolby stereo mix, whether it’s encoded as Dolby 4.1 or 5.1 doesn’t make much difference the surrounds where (monaural) hence there’s no need to have the disc display Dolby 5.1 on the AVR or AVP.

There a few other films like Cocoon that is Dolby 4.1 hence 70mm Dolby format 42, but there was two tracks playing the same sub bass track, and what’s the point in that someone might say. Anyway it’s, nether here or there.

No luck at all this is becoming most (taxing) I’m really naff with computers, but if I can learn how to most things on the computer? Oh well I need to overcome this (obstacle) and then after I have successfully gotten more hands on time with it and learned the basics of it.

I guess I can move on to the next step which is how to compress files that have video information and sound and so on, and …that’s a whole new learning curve, I’ll start with this one first.

Thanks

I’ll have to wait tell next year to buy this as I’m not in the financial position at the moment and I’m a cult fan of this brilliant work that Ridley Scott produced back in (1982).

One vitally important question now I know the new version as a (six-track Dolby stereo digital soundtrack) the BIG question is, does the theatrical (1982) have a six-track Dolby stereo soundtrack and not some poor excuse Dolby stereo 4:2:4 twin track soundtrack.

I was never fortunate to see Blade Runner in 70mm six-track Dolby stereo at the local cinema here in my home town of Bournemouth, thou the cinema is capable of showing 70mm with dual projection, they only screened a conventional 35mm optical Dolby stereo A type print.

Over the years I slightly became obsessed with the Blade Runner soundtrack, and thou the laserdisc directors cut (1992) didn’t quite blow me away like the (1982) version as Deckard and Rachel drive away into the sunset with the saxophone playing and then fading out into the Vangelis score left be totally breathless with the end credits rolling.

Yeah turn the volume up and add a little bit more sub bass extension level I wonder want the original (1982) six-track Dolby stereo mix sounds and feels like?

Thanks.

choose "extract here" as you first step.

YOU ONLY NEED TO DO THIS TO ONE OF THE FILES YOU DOWNLOADED

you will then see another file appear on your desktop. click on that and you will be able to see the video. you were still trying to play the rar files.


adywan

Extract here! LOL oh bless you for showing the way now lets see if this one will allow me to view you’re videos.

Thanks.

- liked the retooled approach into Mos Eisley.
- liked how the Ronto isn't there in the first shot with the stormtroopers. It didn't strike me as intrusive when I first saw the SE (hey, I was just shy of 8!), but now it is. THX for it!
- liked the reworked aliens in the cantina.
- liked the new Luke line (I didn't know it was a different line than was said on the day of shooting).
- liked that ONLY HAN SHOOTS (that's what it should be, 'cause technically, Greedo didn't shoot in '77)!
- liked Ganleigh III (wow, sounds Star Wars-y).
- liked the view of Alderaan out of the window, because the first shot of it through the window always bugged me when I saw the DVDs. Now, it looks great AND consistent!
- LOVED the new Alderaan explosion!

An early Merry Christmas to you, Adywan!


Amras Felagund

Welcome to the OT site Merry Christmas.

Got that right Han shot first! LOL, what was Lucas trying with that cheesy shoot out in the cantina, I’ll have to watch the special edition 1997 THX laserdisc again the extras on side 9 which is at the end of Return of the Jedi.

I must apologise for the inconvenience bringing this to the thread but since I want to resolve this, and view the videos and as for your request for screen shots of the desk top here are a five steps that I took with no success at all. I must be missing a simple step here that is eluding me?

Thanks.
